I’m a nanny because While working on my Elementary Education degree, it makes sense for me to be working with children in order to gain experience. I honestly couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life.
My past childcare experience I have been in child care since I was 12 years old and I decided to ride around my development on my bike and hang up flyers in order to make some fun money. Since then I have done babysitting for people around my neighborhood, friends of family, friends, and Care.com jobs. While just babysitting and still in high school, I also worked at two retail stores at xx and two local restaurants until I figured out that these careers aren't helping my desired career choice-- teaching (more information on this in the next question). I then set out for full time care positions. Since then I have worked for the xx camp with school grades from kindergarten to 5th grade (where I went through First Aid and EpiPen training). I found that working with a family is more intimate and I get to enjoy my time with the children I take care of when its a more one-on-one environment. I worked with a family of two (ages 10 12) for a year until, unfortunately, the family could no longer afford my services or give me the hours I needed. I am looking for another steady nanny/babysitting job that will be long term.
